Resist the urge to be too theme y. For example, the Cape Cod look is a very popular request. You know the hallmarks, beadboard, a blue and white nautical palette, some sailboat paintings. But this has been done so many times, it lacks individuality. In this room the coastal vibe was achieved through a palette, artwork and materials that give the effect without drawing on the obvious clichés.
Here are a few ways that we suggest adding texture to a room. Architectural elements, if you are lucky enough to have crown molding, chair rails, or tray ceilings in your home, make them a focal point. Furniture, wooden benches, satin reading chairs, and marble tabletops all bring a distinct feel to the space. Décor items, shadow boxes, knick knacks or even flowers could be used.
